She holds a BFA in painting from C.C.A.C. and is pursuing a degree in Landscape Architecture at Merritt College. She has also studied abroad at Seika University in Kyoto, Japan. Blending traditional Japanese painting with Dutch-Renaissance mische-technique, Sarah creates subtly layered works influenced by the natural sciences, contemporary design and Zen aesthetics. As a gardener, landscaper and nursery professional, plants occupy Sarah's mind and seed themselves into her paintings.
Kelly Hackett is an Oakland based artist. She graduated from the California College of the Arts in 2011. Her paintings and sculptures are the result of investigations into the various types of goo, including but not limited to: algae, glycerine, bacteria, marine life, polymers, plaque, fat, plant material, soap, crusts of all kinds, cosmetics, geological formations, flesh, and wax.
Anastasia Holland is a self taught artist based in Berkeley, CA. Through her pieces, she explores the connection between the cosmic and natural worlds. Her work is inspired by her practice as a psychic consultant and having spent her childhood in the mountains of the Eastern Sierras. You can follow her on Instagram or check out her website

This weekend will also kick off our new group art show, featuring work of four California textile artists; Julia Canright, recycledlovers, Lise Silva, and Lisa Spayde. These woman all create a variety of detailed wall hangings that focus on a variety of different techniques including; weaving, printing, wrapping, knot work, and more! This new show will be up at Resurrect from September 14th - November 14th. Stop by and check it out during our anniversary bash!
Julia Canright is a bag maker, block printer and SF native. She got her BA in History in Portland, OR and came back to San Francisco to explore a passion for art and design. She creates bold and graphic block printed and painted canvas bags, handmade in the Bay Area. She's committed to quality and craftsmanship with unique design inspired by traditional Indian, Japanese, and West African block printed textile design as well as modern and expressionist art. Her designs express a return to old-world craftsmanship with a fresh, modern aesthetic.
Jenny Martin is the main brain behind @recycledlovers. Just like herself, her brand has evolved. Small beginnings as a vintage online shop, turned into selling handmade items and offering creative design. Her wall hangings are something that were years in the making when she finally decided to take it on full time and quit her "day" job. She is constantly daydreaming about what to make next and every chance she gets, she takes time to create. Jenny feels that her work doubles as a very relaxing experience to sit and manipulate rope in beautiful ways.
Lise Silva is an artist living in Oakland, CA and working from her studio in Berkeley. Strongly influenced by meditation, mysticism, classic film, psychedelic illustration, surrealism, and art deco design, she explores the power of symbols through her work with Sacred Knots creating fiber jewelry and wall-hangings with handmade cord entwined in knot designs that serve as a metaphor for life experiences, dreams, and deep desires. In addition to knotting, Lise's fiber work encompasses sewing, cord wrapping, and tassel-making. Her handmade cord is a part of the unique aesthetic of her work. In a simple, meditative technique known as 'wrapping' a long, single thread wraps continuously down the entire length of the rope, the newly created cord is then knotted and emblazoned with tassels, beads or brass. Her work has been described as dreamy, feminine, mystical, and mysterious.
Lisa Spayde is a Northern California based fiber artist. Having grown up along the sandy shores of San Diego, she is inspired by her native landscapes of rich golden hills and the ever changing California coast. Lisa uses traditional tapestry techniques, along with foraged and re-purposed materials, to create textured woven wall hangings.
Spending much of her life searching for a meaningful creative outlet, Lisa tried her hand at everything from painting to jewelry making and knitting, finally stumbling upon her niche when she took her first weaving class two years ago. The textures she was able to create using a myriad of fibers and color palettes fulfilled her inner need to make. Taking classes from a variety of weavers inspired and influenced Lisa greatly to find her own continuously evolving craft.
The Lioness Oracle AKA Alejandra León Wolfe Rocha will be reading tarot at the shop on Saturday 9/24 from 2pm - 6pm. Alejandra is a professional tarot reader living and working in Oakland, CA. The tarot reading cost is sliding scale, which means whatever you are able to pay ($20+).
